Development of processing technique for the electrochromic window

Technical Report:

Abstract

The electrical load for the comfortable indoor atmosphere has increased. Currently, windows have poor energy management properties. These problems could be solved by the development of adjustable optical shutter so called electrochromic windows. The electrochromism is a reversible color change in a material caused by an applied electric field or current. The electrochromic materials can be applied to the field of the electronic information display and micro battery. However, studies concerned this topic has been ignored as compared to the some advanced countries. It is important to develop the material itself and its processing technique. The final goal of the basic research is the development of processing technique and test for the electrochromic window for the efficient utilization of the solar energy. That is, the feasibility of the electrochromic materials was investigated and the processes and its capability was developed in this research. There has been various techniques for the thin film processes. The researches related to the application for the electrochromic window has been neglected and somewhat theoretical from the view point of energy savings. The various processes were applied to make thin films, which were compared with respect to its durability, reproducibility and economic aspects. Three different electrochromic  More>>

The researches related to the application for the electrochromic window has been neglected and somewhat theoretical from the view point of energy savings. The various processes were applied to make thin films, which were compared with respect to its durability, reproducibility and economic aspects. Three different electrochromic materials for different thin film processes are involved in the present study. W03 thin film from RF sputtering method was light blue and transparent. The anodically formed NiO showed dark brown color but experienced aging effect. The sol-gel dipping process for TiO{sub 2} thin film was successful to obtain uniform anatase phase, but electrochromic property was not displayed mainly due to the improper electrolyte and electrode. The feasibility of thin film processing for electrochromic window has been established by the experimental results. (author). refs., figs., tabs.}
